SUCCESS STORY

Service on the MZS Arkona

©WSA Stralsund - MZS Arkona

The multi-purpose vessel (MZS) Arkona is used by the Federal Republic of Germany to fight against oil and chemical accidents as well as for emergency towing in general maritime traffic. The 69.2 m long special vessel was built in 2004 and is used by WSA Stralsund for the entire area of the southern Baltic Sea. The professional fire brigade also uses the Arkona in coastal areas to fight fires. Several Apollo fire pumps were used in 2004 in order to be well prepared in the event of an fire fighting attack.

After almost 15 years of perfect operation and a new suction line on the Apollo GLVB fire pump, maintenance of the pump was necessary. Due to the replacement of the suction line, the pump became strained and therefore no longer functioned correctly. An on-site repair could not be carried out as the fire pump had to be carried out on the Apollo test bench for diagnosis, reconditioning and the following test run.
